History Sticks To Your Feet
History Sticks to Your Feet - No One's First, and You're Next
Lyrics:

at the movies
eyes iced over
walking sideways
through them gutters
and you realize that the floor
sticks to your feet like history
well don't you look at me
like life don't hold you anymore mystery

bag of splinters
boiling over
on your back
expose your belly
optimism doesn't change the facts
just what you're gonna to see

like it was stated that we're walking
salt and coal
plants solidify sunshine
how'd they start
i don't know
cars and feet and then tire change
shoe stores
the sun's diary pulled up from deep canary holes
and when we read it our skin it becomes warm

3, 4

At the movies
eyes iced over
walking sideways
through the gutter
and you realize life sticks to your feet
you're history
i'm gonna slap that look off your face
like life don't hold no mystery

all those red marks
on our shoulders
self back patting
homemade trophies
well the path only exists
as tiny bricks
we burn to release all it's memory
i've had enough with rolling boulders
i want more moss on me

clocks move splinters
the time goes forward
when them trees are leaves
your feet collect their memories
i guess all is safe
and i guess that a deer can't scheme

i heard you mention that we're walking
salt and coal
plants solidify sunshine
how'd it start
i don't know
cars and feet and then tire change
shoe stores
the sun's diary pulled up
from deep canary holes
and when we read it
our skin it becomes quite warm

at the movies
eyes iced over
walking sideways
through the gutters
and you realize that the floor sticks to your feet
you're history
i'm gonna knock that look off your face
like life don't hold you no more mystery
